The following modular synthesis build I want to share today is based on the Polymodular system, using most of the devices from that system. The oscillator is the VO-1 (which is similar to the Vk-1 Viking synthesizer but then without the use of filter and envelopes). The benefit of the VO-1 oscillator is that it also contains a tuning fork at the rear of this device. Which can be great once you want to have a different pitch per note. This can be handled by using the 8 audio outputs while using the little tuning knobs to tune the audio outputs individually.
While using this mechanism and using 2 times the same oscillator it also results in a much bigger and dynamic type of sound when pressing the same key every time. A nod towards the old school analog synthesizers more or less. The complete build I have made consist of one movement envelope that is looped but can be altered in many ways. That was the original thought process behind this build anyway. Like throwing in an LFO but then with a changeable slope. This can be done by using a control called "smooth" on the movement device.
The smooth button is located on the left-hand side (next to vel amt). Well combine the smooth setting with the Time changes inside the Envelope itself, and you are all set to go.
The complete build I have been working on looks like the following:
This build will require most of the devices from the Blamsoft Polymodular systems.
The following combinator patch was made in Reason 9.5. This combinator should be Reason 6.5 and upwards compatible.
And here is a demo video
